Oval White Pill Watson 540
Hi I am responding to the usually blue but now its white10 mg lortab Watson540 . Just want to let the skeptics know they are taking the blue dye out of them because it is poisonous to some patients my pharmacy advised me last month when my script changed ## Hi pooty, Thanks for taking the time to give us all a heads up on this! For anyone wondering, here is a list of the inactive ingredients in each (blue) Watson 540 tablet: croscarmellose sodium crospovidone magnesium stearate microcrystalline cellulose povidone starch stearic acid FD&C Blue #2 Aluminum Lake Removing the 'blue dye' alone could significantly affect how the drug is absorbed into your system; including what side effects you might be more prone to experience, compared to someone else who may react differently t... ...

watson 540 oval pill- white
I have never heard of this pill before, and it was in my daughters room. What is it? I have been told it is generic for Vicodin 1000 mg. Is this true? How do I keep her from getting them? ## WATSON 540 is Acetaminophen 500 mg (which is a pain reliever) and Hydrocodone 10 mg (which is related to codeine) combines two types of pain medicine to treat moderate to severe pain. To learn more click on the link below... Unfortunately you can purchase many drugs online, so she could be getting them from there. Or maybe she is getting them some where else. You could take her to the doctors every month for a random test, that way she can't hide it. Have you talked to her about it? There are support groups to help with this situation. If you have any more questions or conceerns, please post bac... ...

White Watson 540 10 Mg
Found.. White pill imprint Watson 540.. 10 Mg...? Usually they are blue:10mg/500 hydrocodone/acephatamine Different color same imprint? Same thing or not? Usually they have different imprints or why change color..? ## It's interesting you mentioned that because "most" of the images I found have been oval blue pills. I did however come across a legitimate photo of the one you're describing (elliptical, white, imprinted with WATSON 540) at: rxlist.com/vicodin-hp-drug/patient-images-side-effects.htm NOTE: the dosage of the white pill is confirmed to be the same as the blue pill (500mgs of Acetaminophen + 10mgs of Hydrocodone).

blue oval shaped watson 540 on one side line through middle on other ## Watson 540 is 500 mg Acetaminophen w/ 10 mg Hydrocodone ## That is correct, thank you CJ! This is a generic for Vicodin, Lortab or Norco and I have some new details to add for anyone else seeking information on this tablet. The first is that due to the problems some people were having with the dyes in them, Watson is now changing some of their tablets to remove the dyes, thus as of April 2013, this one is now appearing on the market as a white tablet, but with the same marking and dosage. And the next snippet of information that needs to be added is that by request of the FDA, all of these combination prescription medications are being changed to contain no more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen, per dose. This request w... ...

Blue Pill Watson 540 Tab
are the yellow tabs stronger than the blue tabs?? ## The oval, blue tablet marked Watson 540 contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. The yellow, oval marked Watson 853 contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Thus, since the Acetaminophen tends to improve how well the narcotic Hydrocodone works, the blue tablet would be stronger. This medication may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ## I have taken Vicodin HP's they are oval and white -- I recently got some oval blue pills that say watson 540 on one side and a line on the other....I was told they are the same yet I do not get the same reaction --- can someone pls explain who is Viodan and who is Watson??? are eithe... ...

M363 vs Wat 540
been taking m363 & it worked. Recently pharmacy switched to watson 540 (white oval) noting 'different brand'? Is it just me, or is it possible they don't work as well on me? Seem to take more, which I don't wanna' do. ## Its not the medicine its you as you have developed opiate tolerance. You can tootle that and read about it. If you keep taking. This. You are going to be addicted. Is that what you want? You should read about opiates BEFORE you started taking them. Then you would know. They cause addiction to the same degree they relieve pain.

Lortab
I can't remember which one of my meds is the Lortab and which is the Hydrocodone. One is an oval blue pill that says Watson 540 and the other is white and says M363. Can anyone help me? ## Hi Kim. The blue pill (Watson 540) is lortab, and the white one with M363 is 10mg of hydrocodone. Both pills are essentially the same. They both contain 10mg of generic hydrocodone and 500mg of acetaminaphin (tylenol). I hope this helps you! ## The M363 is 10mg hydrocodone with 500 mg acetaminaphine. It is manufactured by the company Mallinckrodt. I was getting this at Wal-Mart pharmacy. Maybe its just pscychological but it seemed to me the Watson generic worked much better. Thats the blue oval Watson 540 you mentioned . Its also 10 mg hydrocodone & 500 mg acetaminaphine. I changed pharmacies ... ...

44-175
white #44-175 ## Found white oblong pills with 44 175 imprinted on one side. They were in a bottle which identified them as Hydrocodone 10/500mg. And described on the bottle as an Oval Blue tablet with Watson on one side and 540 on the other. Is this likely a pharmacy error or is this likely a situation of someone switching out the pills? My daughter has been treated for Vicodin addiction in the past. and lives at home/ would have had access to this. ## Look mom, we both know the answer to this one....your daughter swtiched the pills. Vicodin addiction is a lifelong battle unfortunately. Once you know you can go to a pill to make you feel good for whatever might be troubling you at the time, its over. A daily battle. Good Luck Mom, get you daughter into treatment and find out the underl... ...
